Ruth Dearnley OBE
CEO of STOP THE TRAFFIK
STOP THE TRAFFIK is a pioneer in human trafficking prevention. Working to unite people around the world by inspiring, informing, equipping, and mobilising communities to know what human trafficking is, know how to identify it and know how to respond appropriately if they saw it. By utilising the power of people and technology, STOP THE TRAFFIK is working to prevent human trafficking globally through our innovative intelligence-led approach. By shining a light on this hidden crime, and by empowering communities and businesses, we can change the environment and increase the risk to the trafficker and the safety of the vulnerable.
Ruth Dearnley OBE has taken STOP THE TRAFFIK from an idea to an organisation with global impact. She reshapes the conventional and reimagines the way the world can work better. Her love of people and their stories combined with her belief in technology allows her to bring together the people who can be part of creating the solution. Ruth sees the future early and builds what is necessary for today.
